Are you a world-class procrastinator? For many people, if procrastination were a competitive event, they could win, place and show. There is one thing, though, that you should never put off: using your dental benefits. Unfortunately, your unused benefits don’t roll over to 2015. By not visiting your dentist before the end of the year, you are essentially tossing your money into a smoldering pit and then setting it on fire. Does that sound like something any rational soul might do?
“Millions of people every year dutifully pay their dental premiums, but then let them go to waste,” says Stafford dentist Dr. Thomas Lomonte.”It’s a shame, and not just from the money perspective. The longer you wait to get even something routine like a teeth cleaning done, you are setting yourself up for more expensive problems down the line. So chances are, if you’ve had some work done this year, you’ve already met your deductible. What most people don’t realize is the deductible resets after the first of the year. Even health flexible savings account money operates under the ‘fly now or forget it’ principle.”
Dr. Lomonte, a Beaumont native, has been creating Texas size smiles for twenty-eight years. Besides his stellar reputation for virtually pain-free dentistry and a warm, personable chair-side manner, he is a top specialist in veneers, crowns, bridges, and dental implants. “Losing teeth can be a traumatic experience for most folks,” Dr. Lomonte explains. “That’s why it’s important to know dental implants are a solution. When you lose a tooth, bone or soft tissue aren’t necessary, so they start to recede. Dental implants will prevent this from happening, providing a root to secure your jawbone and gum tissue. Missing teeth can be replaced with new, durable teeth…no shifting or embarrassment to worry about! We can restore your youth, vitality, and most of all, your beautiful smile.”
Don’t wait until your benefits run out. Don’t stick your hand out the car window and let those lovely pieces of paper fly away. Call now to make your appointment with a dentist who knows the value of you.
